What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure that utilizes several patented technologies in the treatment of aging skin and acne scarred skin. EPN Microneedling comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This controlled process leads to skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin. The creation of micro-channels also aids in the infusion of therapeutic growth factors into the deepest layers of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, smoother, more youthful skin.
